Former NFL quarterback Alex Smith has officially signed a deal to work as an analyst for ESPN, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Smith will appear on SportsCenter, Monday Night Countdown and Sunday NFL Countdown, among other shots.

Andrew Marchand of the New York Post first reported the news, noting Smith will start in a part-time role but can earn a larger commitment if things go well.

The 37-year-old was named the league's Comeback Player of the Year last season with the Washington Football Team, but he announced his retirement in April.
